Melony's table runner!

My niece made this tonight!  She fused, appliqued, quilted and machine bound it all while I watched!  She was easy to teach!  Her mom gave her a sizzix cutter so I wanted her to make something right away.
Cute, right?

Happy hands:happy attitude!

Snowman frenzy finished!

I made a few snowman table toppers, towels, etc. for my girls and my BFF, Debbie.  I just finished them minutes ago.  Here are the towels...
Ali's snowman collection...

Evy's snowmen...

I have to put buttons on the two by themselves.

Well, I can put the sewing machine away tomorrow (for the day) so I can set the table for dinner.  I baked tonight and I have to fill the almond cookies with the cream cheese and cherry filling now. See you tomorrow!

Blue work snowmen

I am making some runners and table mats for Rob and Ali this week.  They have been married for 6 months already! Can you believe it?  Well, I am doing blue work for their items, which I am liking!  A lot!  
I love the snowflake fabric I got today for the background.  These are the fabrics I'll use in the blocks around the runners. Some of the fabric is from the Downton Abby line.  
I'm looking forward to seeing these done!
Oh!  Here is the snowman I made Evy at the basket class.  We even wove the basket bottom!  Fun!  
This one is Debbie's!
This was a fun time!  No one knew what they were doing at first but they came out great!

Cute snowman pillow

Kenny was jealous of the snowmen I made Evy and Pat so I made him this tonight.  It will be a pillow in a few days.  Evy cleaned all of her clothes and stuff out of our house today.  All that's left is the furniture which she will take this weekend.  It will be nice to organize everything this winter and clean it the rest of the way.  I also have to purge tons of stuff.  I am looking forward to that.  
I love this snowman picture!  I guess I am getting over my snowman aversion!

A snowman couple

I am making Evelyn a few things for her new house!  She has purchased an adorable place in a great town, but they won't move in for a few weeks so I thought I'd do snowmen for her instead of Christmas this year.  This will become a runner.

These towels are hand embroidery.  I am working on one more.  I have to add trim to the bottoms.

I made the little ornaments at a rug hooking class.  It was fun but not a full time hobby for me!  
I made a snowman basket this weekend but left it at work so I could paint it with my friends.  We all did it together and had a wonderful time.  I'll show it tomorrow.
